In this exhibition: Robinson Deckert creates a short animated science fiction film using photographs of discarded household objects; Danlly Domingo’s conceptual multimedia installation explores the impact the digital revolution has had on the future of print media; Kat Hughes’s photographs offer an insider’s view of Appalachia; Simon Pinter explores the adaptability of the marine ecosystem of south Florida in the face of human intrusion; Linzi Silverman’s multimedia installation plays off of ideas of memory and moments never experienced; Caroline Sinders explores archetypes of the Southern Gulf Coast through medium-format portraits of her family; Marissa Singer challenges conventional notions of aging through a series of portraits of elderly women from Bayonne, New Jersey; and Lindsay Yellin studies the beauty of reflections on New York City’s window displays to create multi-layered images of alternate realities. Also included are Matt McGrath and Kimera Wachna.
The Department of Photography and Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts is a four-year B.F.A. program centered on the making and understanding of images. Students explore photo-based imagery as personal and cultural expression. Situated within New York University, the program offers students both the intensive focus of an arts curriculum and a serious and broad grounding in the liberal arts.
